Established in 1967 as a sister restaurant to Commander’s Palace in New Orleans, this Midtown landmark is renowned for its award-winning Southern and Creole cuisine. Designed by architect John F. Staub, the restaurant burned to the ground during Hurricane Ike but was completely restored in 2010. The dining rooms maintain their original elegance with exposed brick walls, chandeliers, and white tablecloths topped with fresh flowers, although the oak-shaded courtyard is often in higher demand during the weekend jazz brunch. Signature dishes include turtle soup au sherry, pecan-crusted fish, and bananas foster prepared tableside.
